Becoming an Aged and Disabled Carer

What is an Aged and Disabled Carer?

Aged and disabled carers work in residential facilities or residents’ homes, providing care and support for aged and disabled people. This may include helping with clients’ medication, physical needs such as bathing, dressing, and feeding, and assisting with tasks such as domestic activities and transport.


Introduction

Aged care workers provide assistance, support, and direct care to aged persons in a variety of home, community, and health care settings. Our increasingly ageing population is driving demand for aged care and other individualised home and community support workers. More than 50,000 job openings are expected in the health, aged care and community services sectors over the next five years.
